I'm learning the fingering for jazz piano and am pretty good at 2 octave runs. But now I'm adding a third octave and am running into some issues.

I have a chart - a list really - that names the key then shows the fingering sequence (e.g. 123 1234 123 12345 etc), but it's only for 2 octaves. I'm looking for something similar for 3 octaves. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

Are you talking about scales and arpeggios?
I always use the same fingering as 2 octave pattern for 4 octave practice. Just repeat the first octave until it's the last octave.
123 1234 123 12345 becomes ... (123 1234) x 3 times then 123 12345

Is it different from the fingering for a classical piano?

Thanks for the answers but I must be misunderstanding how to do this.

Siros says just use 2 octave pattern for 4 octave practice. But for example in Bb, the last finger (in 2 octaves) is #4 and if I'm going to repeat the pattern, I should then use finger #2 next. But that doesn't work mechanically. So I can't repeat the pattern.

What am I missing here?

See the chart I sent the link for above. The author puts in an explanation of this in the chart.

OK Tyrone, I see now that there are exceptions which is why I wasn't understanding. Thanks.
